if so, don't forget to set up the appropriate note numbers in SLOT 1,2,3,etc

DITI - Drum Intelligent Digital Interface / Roland CY-15R with DITI
« Last post by johnnykrisma on November 18, 2016, 10:49:39 PM »
I have a Roland CY-15R ride cymbal, I've seen the video of Mario using one with the DITI, and I see that there's a pad type with that. I have it set up using 2 inputs with stereo cables, but cannot for the life of me get it to play more than one sound. Anyone have a guide for setting this combo up?

Thanks!!

I use Native Instruments West Africa Percussion Library with the malletKAT.

Here's a video I did years ago.

Tech help for your KAT MIDI controller(s) / Replacing rubber on PoleKats
« Last post by Synchopath on November 07, 2016, 10:19:16 PM »
OK, likely beating a dead horse here, but the rubber on my PoleKats turned to goo. They seemed to be triggering fine before their demise. I know Drum Tech is now toast, and that Alt Mode does not handle such things.

It has been suggested to use NuBounce rim pads. Anyone have experience in this, who might be able to talk me through it?

Any help or guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks for the tips, ton.

I tried the "training", as described. It works, but only for Curve #3. All the other Curves (including the default #8 for volume/expression) continue to operate backwards despite the training.

I also find better results using Expression (rather than Volume).

What works best will vary with sound source and playing style - that applies to both the range and the curve.  Whilst I understand "use your ears" works well, I do also appreciate some visual guidance to get a hint at what's meant to be happening.

You can also, of course, stick a MIDI monitor on the MalletKAT output, if you have one. and see how it's responding numerically.  Not as intuitive but it's some additional feedback.

Talked today with some (keyboard players) who actually prefer heel down = maximum volume. As did my son.
So it's good it can reversed.

I'm still not comfortable with the settings. For volume, I already set the action from 63-127 because it seems between 0 and 90 the difference to my ears is far less than between 90 and 127

I don't know which curve to choose too. Can't find a description to those. Somewhere it's referenced to a appendix with curve descriptions, but I haven't found them yet.

Hi Frank,

Our FC7 did arrive and out of the (old) box the behaviour was as you described. With an extra unwanted behaviour: volume was set between 0 and 63.

Fortunately the fix is easy: train your pedal.

Procedure is in the manual on page #59 :
Go to Global #8 (foot controller 1) or #9 (foot controller 2), hit a pad, set your pedal to the MAX, hit a pad, set your pedal to the MIN, hit a pad.

This way you can set the action as you like. Toe down for maximum volume as you like. But the other way around is also possible.
And training of the pedal also fixes the controller range. After training volume can be adjusted with the pedal from 0-127

Hth,
Ton

I'll probably have a FC7 myself next week, will post my findings.

Thanks, ton. Curve #8 (which is also the default) is the first one I tried.

I'll be away from the instrument for a few days but will try your other suggestions next week and post again.
